The Best Christmas Ever!

I really did have a great Christmas this year, giftwise, at least! Not that other things were bad, except that I had a cold. I took some cold medicine and had a beer and could not stop laughing! I got a new camera from my darling bf, the Canon Elph, and so far I love it! Here are some pics I took with it:
This is one of the AWESOME presents my sister got for me. She gave me a giant bag filled with tons of scrapbooking goodies!

My camera will take a photo of one color (green) and the rest is black and white. I love this! I know there were editing programs to do that but it is amazing to look and take a shot of something that catches your eye. I haven't figured out how to chnge the color it shoots from green. Does anyone know how to do this?

This is the card I made for my dad for Hannukah:

This is the card I made for my sister, Batman Santa! She saw my last Batman card and wanted one so I had to made one that was slightly different because I really don't like making the same card twice.

Here is a card I made using mostly the December Card Kit from Treasured Scrapbooking.

I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday and I wish you a Happy and Healthy New Year!

It's definitely beginning to look like Christmas!

Well, it's been a busy week and unfortunately not all of it was good. My boyfriend's brother passed away on Monday. He was 38 and had a heart attack. We went to Rhode Island on Monday, came back Tuesday, went back again on Friday and got back today. The drive there is usually 3 hours and it took us 10 hours! That was because of the ridiculous amount of snow and traffic. The roads in Connecticut were barely plowed, but at least we did make it there. I did manage to get a few projects done and I know that's what you are here for!
My first project is a recipe box that I made for my boyfriend's mother. It's the first one I ever made. The pp is all K & Co. And the ribbons are way too many to name!

Here is a cute litte mitten card sending "Warm wishes." The pp is all from Target $ spot.

And my final "masterpiece," is our small tree. We usually get a ginormous tree but we got a 4 ft tree and put it on a cabinet. Our tree topper doesn't light up anymore so I made this little bow and used some pipe cleaners.

Thanks for stopping by! Happy Holidays!

Triple the Sketch #35 and more!

I've been slowly working on my holiday cards and I'm starting to think I may not have enough done. That's because I'm not a particularly organized scrapper. When I make a card, I put a whole bunch of stuff in front of me and play with it. Somtimes I have a kit I want to use, or certain papers or embellies as a starting point. Other times,I use sketches, but that doesn't help me decide what type of card I will make. That is because I usually make cards for no reason except that I want to create something. At least with holiday cards, I have a theme. Does anyone else work like this? I also shop for scrappy stuff like this too. I buy stuff i like and eventually figure out something to do with it it.

Fortunately sketch #35 from Triple the Sketch gave me some direction on this card! And I have been wanting to use this blingy Ho Ho Ho (Me and My Big Ideas)since I bought it last year.

patterned paper - Basic Grey Figgy Pudding

I wanted to make a pink holiday card and here it is:

This card was inspired by a card I saw on Kraft Girls Kits

It's been a while

I haven't posted anything here in so long! I hope someone missed me...anyone? LOL
I went to Rhode Island for Thanksgiving weekend, then this past week I was busy with work so I didn't get to do much crafting. I will show you the few things I made though. This cute little snowman card was inspired by both Danielle Flanders and Danni. They both made adorable snowmen with white buttons and I had to make one too!

This is another card I made using lots of BG Figgy Pudding that I love so much.

The next 2 cards are different for me because I am actually making more that one of the same design. I rarely do that but I had so much fun stamping the star image and then covering it in glitter that I wanted to make a bunch of them in every color glitter that I have. These are the cards that I'm using for my Paper Therapy card swap at So if any of you are looking at these cards, you will be getting one similar from me, so if you want to be surprised stop looking now!

This one was made using my December card kit from Create My Keepsake.
